So I’ve finished the 30 day elimination part and am onto the re-introduction phase of the elimination diet (which means I keep eating the same, but just re-introduce a new food every three days). I’m testing for nightshades, so I’ll incorporate those alongside the stuff I’m regularly eating.
I’m sticking with the salads for lunch to keep things simple. And did Cornish game hens instead of a turkey. Too many complications with my fave turkey recipe and sides, so decided to opt out and sub in the Cornish game hens instead – perhaps I’ll celebrate Thanksgiving along with the Americans in November :)
Oh, and I didn’t quite mean for my food to be so poultry heavy. I realized that I’d be eating hens/chicken/turkey, but not until it was all sitting there in front of me did that fully sink in. Oh well :P The hens are being cooked in two batches, one over the weekend and the rest in a few days. And the salads will be assembled daily.
This week’s menu:
- Breakfast: Turkey meatballs with chard (loving the chard!). Plus “supplements”: sauerkraut and Fermented Cod Liver Oil.
- Lunch: Salad with roasted chicken, Italian prune plums, avocado, pears, cucumber, and olive oil.
- Dinner: roasted Cornish game hens with baked kabocha squash and roasted Brussels sprouts.
Now I have food for most of the week – such is the joy of batch cooking :)
